Helping people to be healthy and happy

West Lancashire Borough Council is proposing to build two new Leisure and Wellbeing Hubs in Skelmersdale and Ormskirk. These will replace Nye Bevan Pool and Park Pool and will offer an exciting range of new activities.

We want your views on our proposals.

The Skelmersdale Leisure and Wellbeing Hub will be a fantastic addition to the town. We want to know what you think about the plans.

We are proposing that the Skelmersdale Leisure and Wellbeing Hub includes:

  • 25m x 6 lane main pool
  • Teaching pool
  • Leisure pool
  • 120 station fitness suite
  • Multi-purpose activity rooms
  • 10-pin bowling
  • Clip-and-climb
  • Adventure soft play
  • Café

* subject to final design approval

The preferred location for the new Skelmersdale Leisure and Wellbeing Hub is on Ingram next to Asda.

The Hub will replace Nye Bevan Pool which will only close once the new facility is ready to open.

Vehicle access to the Hub will be from Northway and Ingram and the facility will also be accessible to pedestrians and cyclists from Skelmersdale Town Centre.

 

The Ormskirk Leisure and Wellbeing Hub will transform the local leisure offer, giving us a centre fit for the twenty-first century.

We are proposing that the Ormskirk Leisure and Wellbeing Hub includes:

  • 25m x 6 lane main pool
  • Teaching pool
  • Leisure pool
  • 120 station fitness suite
  • Studio spaces
  • Spin studio
  • Assault course style soft play area
  • Café

* subject to final design approval

We are proposing to build the new Ormskirk Leisure and Wellbeing Hub on Churchfields.

This will provide improved access for users from County Road (A59) and will also enable the existing Park Pool facility to remain open while the new Hub is being constructed.

Once the new Hub building is open the existing Park Pool site will be returned to Parkland as part of a broader scheme to improve Coronation Park.
